Sorry to be off topic but aren't the numbers 6 or 4 generally a bad omen in Chinese? 4 means death does it not? I think they'll avoid a 640m height and aim at either 630 or 650m.

@Myster E, not of off topic at all when deciding the height of a Chinese skyscraper. So many of them end in 8

8 and 6 are both positive, especially 888 and 666.

666 is a positive number for Chinese?

Back to the topic. I wonder if they already start doing the preparation (digging)>

It's ok, 616 is the "real" number of the beast, 666 was a mistranslation, so 666m is a fine height.

I just got back from a month in Shanghai and Lujiazui is impressive to say the least. From the top of lil' Jin Mao the financial centre towers above you while giving you a great view of ICC and HSBC buildings under construction. I can only imagine how impressive the center will be...2014 is so far away though :-(

Very nice last pics ! In the second pic of the set, the tower model reminded me a little bit to Taipei101 inside a transparent bag...
